Communication in the Real Worldby Richard G. Jones, Jr. overviews the time-tested conceptual foundations of the field, while incorporating the latest research and applications of these basics. Each chapter includes timely, concrete, and real-life examples of communication concepts in action. Jones engages students with a conversational tone while still including key theories and concepts that will challenge students to think about communication in new ways. References to current events and hypothetical examples also challenge students to think critically about communication ethics. This textbook is suitable for the speech and communication courses that are a combination (or hybrid) of basic communication courses (e.g., interpersonal, group, public speaking). It is appropriate for majors and non-majors.
